Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:28pm. School was good, but I'm happy to be back at home. It's REAL warm outside. Upper 70s, and for this time of the year. It's only supposed to be in the mid 60s. But I'm sort of enjoying the nice weather, and I hope you all enjoy it while you can. I know I am, and speaking of that, I'm going on a weird schedule for tomorrow and Sunday. Tomorrow, I'll be blogging from 9am to 12:15pm, then I have that clean-up until 2pm. Then, I'm going to clean up for a football game that I'm going to at Amundsen High School tomorrow. I'll be leaving here at about 3:15 and won't be back until 7 or 7:30. So, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.
